radioAUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

On The Tom McConnell Show (CJBK-AM 1290 London, and CKTB-AM 610 St. Catharines) Freedom Party President Robert Metz called-in to join the discussion about the taxi industry, and its attempt to promote a monopoly on transportation – a monopoly that ultimately would exclude Uber – by pretending that taxis offer a level of safety not offered by Uber. Metz is particularly critical of taxi monopoly advocate Roger Caranci, with whom he and Freedom Party have had run-ins in the past (among other things, Metz ran against Caranci in the 1999 Ontario provincial general election, in which Caranci was the Liberal candidate in the riding of London North Centre).

“Call it “socialized energy” or “energy care”: energy on the basis of need, not on the basis of ability to pay. In an interview on the globally-broadcasted radio program “Just Right” today, Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever warned that that is the real purpose of the Kathleen Wynne government’s various “climate” policies – including cap-and-trade, ending natural gas home-heating, subsidizing electric cars and charting stations, etc…” Click here to read the full media release.

“Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever has objected to the Wynne government’s announcement today that Ontario will give $50M to Guelph auto parts manufacturer Linamar Corp.

“One proper function of the Ontario government is to ensure that nobody is looted by his neighbour”, said McKeever. “The Wynne government instead is offering to do the looting for one of our neighbours”…” Click here to read the full media release.

Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever is the guest of “The Andrew Lawton Show”, which airs beginning at 1:00 PM daily on AM980, in London, Ontario. The interview began at 1:35 PM.

The discussion was prompted by a November 2, 2013 CBC news report about Mr. Sam Lou, who has been a barber for 15 years. Pursuant to the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009, hairdressing (which is deemed to include the work done by a barber) is currently the only service identified as a compulsory trade (compulsory in the sense that one must now be a member of the College of Trades in order to perform the work of a hairdresser or barber). Mr. Lou has been told that either he must learn the hairdressing techniques needed to style, perm, colour etc. a woman’s hair, or else he cannot be a member of the College of Trades. Having opened a barber shop one month ago, the government has just shut down his business. Another Barber, Mr. Frank Olszynko – who has been cutting hair since the 1960s – says that if he is fined for carrying on his barber work without membership in the College, he will refuse to pay the fine, and will fight it in court.

McKeever explains that, although the College of Trades must go, that is not the root of the problem. The problem is that government is preventing people from buying or selling services freely.
